How To Choose The Right Sliding Door Repair Company
A sliding door is a fine way to add extra space to a room, but like any other thing with moving parts, it can break. If your sliding door is stuck, off track, or just doesn’t seem to work right, you may need to call in a professional to check it out.
The best way to choose the right sliding door repair company is to first determine what type of sliding door you have. If you want a brand new sliding door, then you should contact a business that specializes in installing new sliding doors – or the manufacturer if in warranty.
If you have a sliding door that is more than 10 years old, then you should probably contact a company that specializes in repairing sliding doors. That will be a much cheaper option than spending thousands on a set of new doors.
But how to choose exactly?

How quickly do sliding door repair company proprietors respond to the reviews they get?
This lets you know the company’s attitude towards its customers. You can work out whether a company is worth dealing with and what kind of work they do just by reading reviews. You can also be pro-active and see how quickly the business responds to a genuine query you may have.
Read the bad reviews first and work your way up to the good ones. Why do we say this? Sometimes companies get their friends, employees or family to write reviews. Short, glowing reports with 5 stars and lots of uploaded pictures is usually a friend. Even worse (don’t tell Google) – some companies pay for reviews! (Shock, horror!). You can usually tell if a review is legit.
We suspect that any Google review with less than 5 stars is probably real. The same is usually true for long-winded reviews (TL;DR ?).
By reading lots of reviews, you’ll likely save your self hundreds when it comes to repairing your sliding door. You are basically auditing the company’s ethics policy.
Finally, take your wonky old sliding door into long, hard consideration. If it’s really old or very damaged, a professional may not be able to (or even want to) fix your sliding door. You might have to bite the bullet and pay for a new one. They are very expensive, but we can point you in the right direction.
We’re pretty flexible here at Revive Sliding Doors. Our bet is that you don’t need a new one. We have yet to find a jammy sliding door that we can’t fix.
Yessiree Bob! A sliding door can be a great space-saving addition to a room. But it’s important to keep it well-maintained. That means vacuuming the tracks for dust, lubricating the locks, hiding the keys in a place where you can find them again, cleaning the glass and keeping your children from skateboarding into it (because it’s now so clean).
